Lakehouse Cameron Highlands

One of the days we decided to drive down to Ringlet to see whats up in Ringlet. Since they opened the new road, we usually take the back road which goes through Brinchang instead of Ringlet. This time around since we got the time we decided to take a drive. On the way down to Ringlet, just before Ringlet town, we happened upon a nice house.

I decided to take a drive in and we found out actually it is a nice guest house called Lakehouse. It is a colonial style accommodations which is very similar to Baba House and Ye Olde Smoke house in Tanah Rata. However this place was much bigger then the rest. Just looking at the front of the property you will feel like you are in England and coupled with the weather, it doesn't feel like Malaysia anymore.

The inside of the place has also a very colonial feel and it actually feels like being in your own home. Check out the meeting room.

I also like the common area where there is a nice big fire place. I just wonder if they actually use the fire place.

We took the opportunity to walk around the area and we were lucky enough not to get chased out. It was a great place to take photos.

Just outside the reception on the back part of the place was a huge chess board painted onto the floor. We couldn't resist having some fun.

What is a chess board without the chess pieces. However we couldn't find any chess pieces around. So we decided to get creative.

Too bad the picture is a little dark and I could have done better on the photography side. Just as we finished taking the chess pieces pictures, the sun came out and we got some really nice light. So decided to do some portraiture. The model is none other them Amy.

We wanted to see if we can have dinner here that day but after seeing the prices, we decided it ain't worth it. However I think the next time we come to Cameron Highlands we might see if we can stay here. It is quite nice and it would be great to see how cool the rooms are.
